Issue with DES Encryption with HSM

Apr 7, 2011 at 8:17 PM

Dear All,

could any one help me pls.

i need to confirm my steps.

the key is 16 bytes and it's value is : AC15F5EB4C21593D312F11E412ED2653

and the Data is : AABBCCDDEEFF1122

in my case what is the right algorithm that should be used DES or Triple DES?

what should be the correct Encryption result for the above data?

This is a double-length key (32 hex characters), so you'd use Triple DES. The result of encrypting the data under the key is E3B9AA0EB2B66183. You can try using EFT Calculator to quickly perform DES/3DES operations yourself.

Dear nickntq

first of all i really appreciate your help

does this software simulate Thales P3 HSM?

thanks a lot.

No, it does not. It only simulates Thales 8000.
